Forum: more_animation Subject: Warner Bros removing PD cartoons

I uploaded Bosko The Doughboy on youtube and instantly it was taken down stating "This video has been removed due to terms of use violation" I know for a fact that this cartoon is indeed PD so can only conclude they are being over zeolous protecting the copyright regarding music cues. What is the REAL status regarding fair use on early warner cartoons in the public domain

Depends. Ive been researching this alot because of my show. If you uploaded a remastered print, {ie from the Golden Collection} Warner Bros has the copyright to that remaster and has every right to remove it. However, if its an un-remastered print, they have no legal right. Music is still a grey area I'm still exploring. I was told that you can use it if its part of the film because the performace of it is PD. For example: If you buy a PD DVD of The Beverly Hillbillies, you will notice the theme song is missing. The theme is a seperate entity and is protected by copyright. However, when you watch the show, you'll notice the incendental music is there. It's because that performance is PD because that episode is even though the music is copyrighted. Of course, It's A Wonderful Life's copyright was restored because of copyrighted music. So that's where it gets tricky.

I had the same problem with Warner Bros.
Everything i uploaded they either claimed to own the foot at 1.22 or the nose at 3.46.
Joke a side, i thought Disney would be like that but the only problem i ever had was with Warner Bros.
They seem to have a hard time letting go of the public domain cartoons and they are extremly annoying.
I get the feeling that they don't care about the art just the money.
